Northern Ballet | Go behind the scenes for Open Day
Northern Ballet and Phoenix Dance Theatre throw open the doors of their multi award-winning powerhouse for dance on Saturday 12 May for a day of free events. Suitable for all ages and interests, visitors will be able to go behind the scenes of two popular dance companies and join in with the wide range of activities on offer.
There will be performances from both companies, dance physiotherapy consultations and a range of all-age, all-ability taster dance classes. There will be retellings of Northern Ballet’s well known productions like The Nutcracker, Beauty and the Beast and Peter Pan alongside craft activities and music sessions running throughout the day.
This is the second Open Day hosted by the companies, who launched their new building in June 2011. The previous Open Day attracted over 2,000 visitors from around the region.
All events and activities are free but booking is essential due to the popularity of the event. Visit Northern Ballet’s website for more information and to book places or call 0113 220 8008.
